Sankalp Volunteer was launched in October 2006. Now it's become India's leading volunteer activity provider who provides meaningful volunteer work opportunities with non-profit society (NGO) at lowest program cost.
Sankalp has been operating volunteer projects in India for the past 9 years. We are proud of our approach of establishing long-term and sustainable projects, in which the local community is always consulted first and foremost in order to determine their needs.
Why Do Volunteers Pay?
General administration, cost supports, office staff and the field coordinators in each location where we run programs. It is a fact that no organization could operate without overhead fund that goes towards staff salaries, communications IT, telephone, email postage, general office supplies, legal consultation, rent for project site offices, taxes, vehicles and maintenance.
The volunteers who travel abroad need accommodation, food and in-country transportation, daily transportation to project. We welcome volunteers directly without support of any of the placing agencies therefore fund for website maintenance and promotions and web advertising. For the promotion, administration and continuing of our projects a small part of the money is reserved.
